September in Colorado

The great Colorado outdoors and fun places to eat.

  • 1. Frisco
    Frisco, Colorado

    Great place to start or end your week in the Colorado Rockies. Frisco is located between Dillon, CO and Breckinridge. Main Street has plenty of interesting shops, restaurants and plenty of choices for a cold beer. We have stayed at the Comfort Inn in Dillon and found the rooms to be very clean and the most affordable of the week. I would recommend lunch on the deck of Ruby Tuesdays just across from the hotel with a beautiful view of two mountains nearby. Po Boys on Main in Frisco was a blast for food and cold beer on game night.

  • 2. Fairfield Inn Steamboat Springs
    Fairfield Inn & Suites Steamboat Springs, Steamboat Springs, Colorado

    Have staryed at both the Fairfiled Inn and the Hampton Inn which are both close to town, very clean and reasonably priced. We chose the Fairfield Inn this time b/c the Hampton is next to train tracks. So many places to recommend here to eat or just relax with a margarita. Freshies is our favorite for breakfast b/c you can sit outside and people often bring their dogs with them. Nothing fancy, but the breakfast is the best. Winona's is the best for a casual lunch downtown on Lincoln Avenue. Great sandwiches and the people watching is fun. Mexican salsa and margarita's can be found on the rooftop at Rio Grande and at Cantina Fresh Mexican. I prefer the rooftop of Rio grande on a nice early fall day. I have two recommendations for dinner. They are Mahogony Ridge for sharing appetizers and a bit more upscale atmosphere or mambo italiano's at 521 Lincoln Avenue for the best Italian in town. By the way, their pizza is fantastic!!.

  • 3. Estes Park
    Estes Park, Colorado

    We usually end our stays in Colorado with a visit to Estes Park. It's only 1.5 hours to the airport and it's a great place to stay and visit Rocky Mountain National Park with the Elk mating season in full gear. We usually stay at the Best Western and would highly recommend it based upon price, location and quality of the rooms. We prefer the Bighorn restaurant for breakfast, but would imagine it's also a fine choice for lunch or dinner. We usually take our lunch in the RMNP so we can view all the wildlife. For dinner I would highly recommend to very enjoyable restaurants. Mary's Lake Lodge which is five miles outside Estes Park on Hwy 7 had an expansive menu and huge portions for a very reasonable price. The old lodge persona was perfect. The Redstone Restaurant on 225 W. Riverside Drive has also been a very enjoyable, although more intimate location.
